Importing and mapping leads into LeadExec is a great way to submit a large number of leads into the system or to import a group of leads that you cannot have sent through typical automation or distribution.

First, you have to configure your file for importing. LeadExec will only accept Excel files in 97/2003 format. It will also cap a spreadsheet at a maximum of 64,000 rows.

LeadExec has an auto-mapping system that will create headers and match fields to assist in connecting the date from your sheet to your lead type.

When creating your import file, we recommend generating posting instructions to assist in creating your spreadsheet.

Once you have your import sheet configured, it is time to upload and import the file.

Go to the Lead Sources tab in your LeadExec system and choose the Import Files option on the left side menu.

Go to lead sources, then import files.
Click upload new file.

Now you can choose the lead source in the drop down menu.
